CMMID Seminar | Modelling the impact of new diagnostic tests on drug resistant gonorrhoea epidemiology
Summary Katy Turner will present results from a novel individual based network simulation model of gonorrhoea transmission in men who have sex with men. The model incorporates multiple strains, including drug resistant strains and flexible options to determine management of individual patients, based on individual diagnosis (e.g. new point of care tests), extended use existing […]
Seminar | Resistant Microbes and Precarious Lives: Aquaculture health practices and their social and material determinants.
Summary This seminar presents field evidence and experience in Bangladesh that examines the country’s export-led aquaculture practices and associated therapeutic applications. In the southwest of Bangladesh farmers earn a precarious living farming shrimp and prawn in aquatic environments harbouring novel pathogens, and in a state of near permanent disease. Over the past four decades development […]
In late November 2017, the AMR Centre hosted 38 researchers, health and policy professionals in London for a roundtable to discuss how best antibiotic use can be measured in a way that informs strategies to address antibiotic resistance both nationally and internationally. This is a major challenge across different settings given the variety of antibiotics […]
